  9. Tarte - smolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof liner, full size, $25 value
Also included is a pamphlet and a magazine.  Each page of the pamphlet features one of the included products and includes the following information:  ingredients, how to use and info about the company.  This is my favorite sample box and I highly recommend it.  Be sure to order early since it sells out when featured on air.  It only includes cosmetics that QVC sells and are all brands that I enjoy.  I look forward to using the Julep nail polish, it's a really pretty coral, peachy color that will be nice in the spring.  I am also a Julep Maven and receive monthly nail polish boxes from Julep.  If you want more information on that subscription box, click here.  I love the Ole Henriksen's & Algenist  lines, so I will be using these soon.  They are very expensive brands that I would not normally purchase due the price!  So I'm always happy to see them included in the Test Tubes.  The small sample size of the face wash from Philosophy is the perfect size for the shower.  The hand cream is the perfect size for traveling or to slip into your hand bag.  I'm not as familiar with the Nick Chavez line, so I really can't say much about that line of cosmetics. The Soy Face cleanser is a little packet sample, only to be used once or twice. The Mally lip color is a pretty pink with very fine gold and pink glitter.  Her lip gloss has a very smooth texture, not sticky at all.  The Tarte eye liner is a brown color.  I will have to look for a video on how to apply this one. It's very wide, so I'm not sure how you are suppose to line your eyes with such a wide point.  At first glance I thought it was eyeshadow.  So there you have it, the latest QVC New Beauty Test Tube shipment.  What's your favorite sample subscription?
